Candlestick charts are an analytical technique that transforms data into single price bars over multiple time frames. It makes them more valuable than conventional open-high, low-close bars or lines that link the closing price points. When charted, candlesticks generate trends that forecast price action. Proper color codes add depth to this technical tool first built by Japanese rice traders in the 18th century.
There are a number of different entry strategies for investors while trading pin bars. The first, and perhaps most famous, is to join “at market”. Simply meaning that you enter the market at the current price. A trader can also enter a pin bar trade by entering just below or above the pin bar.
